Every other day Kali is human. And, on the other days, not so much. On those days, she’s resistant to pain, heals super fast, and is compelled to hunt the preternatural creatures lose in the world. Therefore, it’s a pain – well, disaster, really – when, on a human day, she realises cheerleading popular girl, Bethany, is destined to die. Bethany has been bitten by a chupacabra. Because of her lifestyle, Kali hasn’t made friends, so is shocked when Skylar approves her. But, Skylar has her own secrets – and a handy bunch of big brothers – all of which will come in very handy, vital, if they are to save Bethany and survive the upcoming battle. And maybe, just maybe, Kali will find out who and what she is.
Not so much action heroine, but a teen discovering her identify within an urban fantasy setting… 4 star read for me.
